In May of 2005, Shane Thomas received the call the he had always dreamed about. He was asked to perform in front of a sold out crowd at the Paramount Arts Center in his hometown of Ashland, Kentucky with country music star Craig Morgan. The show was a true hit and Shane was a hit with the crowd. Radio stations in the area began receiving calls about his music. Shane was immediately booked for another show on July 4th with headliner John Michael Montgomery. This pattern continued over the next few months as he was invited to perform shows with acts such as Little Big Town, Andy Griggs, and Aaron Tippin, Jeff Bates, etc.
In early 2006, just one year after his first major show, Shane felt that he was ready to actively begin pursuing his dream of becoming a country music artist. He knew that if he did not make the move now then he would never leave Kentucky. So, in May of 2006, Shane packed his bags, kissed his family goodbye, and headed for Tennessee.
Shane now performs regularly at locations around Nashville and tours nationally throughout the year. He is a regular on Travel Inc’s annual Country Music Cruise along with artists such as Danielle Peck and Ray Scott. Recently, Shane was invited as a guest of Toby Keith to attend the 2007 Fiesta Bowl.
Shane and his long time girlfriend, Jessica, along with their beloved Weimaraner, Deuce, recently purchased a home near Nashville.
Shane is a performer that brings the audience to the stage. He allows the energy to flow at such a high level that everyone feels like they are a part of the show. From dancing in the aisles to singing a ballad to a member of the audience, there is never a dull moment at Shane’s concert. Shane will tell anyone that “I love performing, and feeling the energy you get from the crowd when you walk on stage!”
